“With this expansion in Calgary, we are delivering on our commitment to invest in Western Canada and support businesses of all sizes by providing them with more choice when it comes to high-speed fibre connectivity,” said Dean Prevost, the president of Connected Home and Rogers for Business, in a statement.

The carrier notes that construction on the project began last year and is now complete in downtown Calgary.
